 ShinCha 2020 Green Tea - Sedona Arizona's Full-Leaf Tea Store 
This Japanese GREEN TEA is produced from only the freshest spring/April 2020 1st harvest leaves, and specifically grown in Shizuoka, about 90 miles southwest of Tokyo and not far from Mount Fuji. ShinCha literally means “new tea”, and the first pick of the year is considered the best leaves. The tea plant stores up nutrients while dormant in the winter. As the first buds appear, a higher level of nutrients (amino acid L-theanine, vitamin C, and catechin antioxidants) are in the leaves than are in the rest of the year. This makes a sweeter tea, and next to no astringency. It has a light-steam firing has a much fresher, greener flavor and aroma then the SenCha spring and early summer harvest blend. ShinCha is not put into storage. It is processed in limited amounts and distributed quickly throughout Japan where it is used as a cultural event. This level of tea freshness is not commonly found in the United States. ShinCha is considered to be more intense flavor and fragrance than regular SenCha. Some prefer to decrease the brew time, or the amount of leaf used, then what they are used to brewing with SenCha.
 
MODERATELY CAFFEINATED (approx 30% of the caffeine as coffee)
 
AVAILABLE AS: 2 OZ Package,   1 OZ PACKAGE
Package size is 2 ounces of full leaf tea, which yields approximately 25 first cups. 1 ounce package for about 10-12 cups.
 
BREWING: 1 level teaspoon (about 3 grams or 1/10 oz) for every 8 oz of 165°F fresh water. Steep for 1-2 minutes or to desired taste. A second and third infusion or more is possible by increasing steep time 30 seconds each time. Some prefer to decrease the brew time, or the amount of leaf used, then what they are used to brewing with sencha. Japanese tea is especially enjoyed as a “true cold-brew", by brewing for a least 10-15 minutes with melting ice.
